Trials, Trails, and Tales Italy '08

Several weeks ago I had the honor of visiting close friends of mine in Italy. The host was Dario, a friend I have enjoyed knowing for years.
He is an accomplished rider with many adventures to his credit including trips to Morocco and also exploring many routes around Italy via Trials Bikes or his enduro bikes. My Trip would include Rome, enduro bike riding near lake Bracciano North of there, Some trials riding in the Mtns.
Competing in a local trails event near Rieti and topping off with 4-5 days enduro ride on a borrowed xr 400. on the island of Sardinia.
Choosing the best pictures is hard and most of the pictures from Sardinia are compliments of the other generous riders I was with.
there is also some video worthy of Americas Dumbest home videos . Wait and see! enjoy! [IMG][/IMG]MY very special hosts Dario and Giovanna
Texting at 85 KPH then norm, most might be eating as well

Next up. Enduro riding

[IMG]%3Ca%20href=%22http://s156.photobucket.com/albums/t22/jjustj/pics%201%20Italy/?action=view&current=cbe49dbf.jpg%22%20target=%22_blank%22%3E%3 Cimg%20src=%22http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t22/jjustj/pics%201%20Italy/cbe49dbf.jpg%22%20border=%220%22%20alt=%22Self%20% 20serve%22%3E%3C/a%3E[/IMG]Lake Bracciano is Noth of Rome a few miles and would be the starting point of a ride with new friends, Marco (whos house we left from)
Danielle, and Dario. This was my first chance to ride like a Roman IE; lane splitting, going to the front of the pack at stoplights, and treating stop signs as merely a suggestion and make sure no one is coming! etc. at least on the way to the off road portion. What a gas!
